Why Theresa Skarsten chose River West
The westside of Bend is home to the old Shevlin-Hixon and Brooks Scanlon lumber mills. Many families lived and raised their children here. The westside of Bend is now the place to be, live and visit. Beautiful parks and walking trails nearby. Numerous pubs, restaurants, shopping and activities nearby. Bend is a dog and bike friendly town.

The home itself is very cozy and comfortable. It has a peace and comfort to it that will make you want to come back. You'll love the neighborhood and the location.

Quiet, private, comfortable, well located and responsive hosts!
We spent three weeks at Pine Cone cottage, and loved it for many reasons. The location is perfect for exploring a yoga studio (6 blocks), Dharma Center (10 blocks), Safeway grocery store (10 blocks) and resturants (3 blocks). There are hiking trails a 10 minute walk or a 10 minute drive. The owners Theresa and Bob are kind, quite responsive and helpful with questions or concerns. Bob brought over a fly swatter when a pesky fly got inside. The little cottage has everything we need: excellent beds, comfy living room recliners, a well appointed kitchen, well stocked bathroom, reliable WiFi, and our favorite…a wonderful private back patio with both sun and shade, perfect for reading and eating lunch and dinner. The fountain and bird feeders were felt just like home. The outside space was perfect for enjoying Bend’s exquisite summer weather. Quiet, private, comfortable, well located and responsive hosts made for one our best rental experiences.
Mother’s Day weekend
This was the perfect house for a relaxing getaway. Clean, quiet, cozy and great location. Backyard is perfect for dogs, and the house is stocked with ample supplies in case you need an extra doggy blanket or poop bag.
We stayed here last June and loved it so much we rented it again while visiting my friend in Bend. It is the perfect size for us. Very pet friendly also. It is very clean, well stocked, very private backyard, a garage to park your vehicle in. The owners are the best. We will rent it again next time we visit Bend.
Delightful! Relaxing, well stocked+, garage a bonus, privacy/back yard/hot tub, attentive owners...
All the comforts of home; kitchen wasn't utilized in our short visit, but would be fabulous if we'd wanted to cook. Central location to man wonderful restaurants, and Newport Market, oh my! Attention to detail everywhere...do yourself a favor, and try this oasis out!
Nice home and great location
We had a wonderful stay. We appreciated the fenced yard and dog friendly atmosphere. The house is nicely furnished and the outside is lovely with many yard decorations. We also enjoyed the hot tub—that was a plus after skiing all day. We would definitely stay again.
Cozy cottage with lots of extras
This home was clean and very well stocked. The hot tub is well situated, even on those rare days when it rains in Bend! It's in a good location for getting around in Bend and the owners were helpful and very easy to work with.
